Subject: Re: [BIBFRAME] OCLC role stats

Mac, and all,

The project that Roy Tennant is working on around OCLC stats has produced a list of 100 $e terms and their frequencies. You can see this at:

http://experimental.worldcat.org/marcusage/2013-04-100e.txt

There are nearly 11,000 such unique terms in that subfield. The 700 $e has not be provided yet - I assume it will be as various. Here are the first 11 in that list:


4101390 Auteur.
224450  ed.
163390  zhu.
135210  comp.
92854   zhuan.
84300   photographer.
79274   author.
38507   bian zhu.
35361   artist.
27213   interviewee.
25046   Author.



"ed." is the one I recall seeing most often, and there it is near the top of the list.

The instructions in MARC say:

"$e - Relator term

Designation of function that describes the relationship between a name and a work, e.g., ed., comp., ill., tr., collector, joint author.











700     1#$aSmith, Elsie,$d1900-1945,$eillustrator.
700     1#$aHecht, Ben,$d1893-1964,$ewriting,$edirection,$eproduction."

I could compare the list of terms in the LC MARC relator list to Roy's list of $e's, but first need to remove the ending periods, and that complicates things because many of the terms are in the list both with and without ending periods, so we don't really know how often the *term* appears... I'll also need to normalize the case. But if I get a chance I'll do some analysis.

To me the key thing about Roy's list is that it shows that there will be *many* lists of valid role terms, not just one. And in some library communities, who knows?, the role may  not be from a controlled list but might be uncontrolled or transcribed from the title page. I still think BIBFRAME needs a way to deal with this that doesn't mess with the name authority.

The list that I was working from was not coded in MARC. The 'names' were
not the abbreviated names that would be in $e, but were the 'terms'
listed in the LC relator list beside each of the codes.


The terms which go in $e are not abbreviated.  Some are one word, and
some are phrases.  The codes go in $4.

The code definitions (which I assume you mean) are in some cases the
same as, and in some cases differ from, RDA relationship terms.

We plan to export those code deffinitions in $e for non Canadian
cleints; we have them in both French and English, and don't want to do
the work of pairing up the codes with RDA terms.  It would be nice if
our various standard setting bodies would work together on one set of
wheels,

I assume ILS which can interpret codes would display the code
deffinitions, as opposed to the RDA terms.

If interested, here are the French code deffinitions we will use:
